Foresight in Medicine

The Italian Embassy in Washington will close the scientific component of the "2013: Anno della Cultura Italiana negli Stati Uniti" initiative with the conference: "I Am Not My Body. I Am My Mind: in memory of Rita Levi-Montalcini - Foresight in medicine: research induced society changes in the next decade".

The event will take place in Washington on December 13th, 2013 and will host a debate among scientists, doctors, policy makers and epistemologists aimed at identifying and discussing forthcoming medical research developments likely to impact on society in the next ten years.

In preparation of the event, the Embassy requested a Management Committee to draft a Delphi like consultation (Phase 1) whose results will define key items to be further developed by the Committee (Phase 2) and discussed during the December 13th event. ISSNAF participates to this effort by warmly inviting you to participate in this consultation.
